Seeds & Harvesting

Fertilization and Seed Development brings the Wisconsin Fast Plants(TM)邃「 back to the beginning of the life cycle. After pollination, fertilization yields a new and genetically unique single cell. Embryogenesis takes this single cell and sees it through to a seed.
Harvesting Your Wisconsin Fast Plants(TM)™ Seeds

1. Approximately 20 days after last pollination, when the ends of the pods are changing from green to brown, remove the fast plant wickpots (quads or bottles) from the water reservoir.

2. Let plants dry for 7 days until pods are crisp and brown.

3. Cut plants off and place them in a paper bag. Label the bag with the planting and pollination information.

4. If pods are not crisp, let pods dry further in bag.

5. Staple bag shut, then break up pods thoroughly by crushing them in the bag to release the seeds.

6. Pour seed and chaff into shallow tray.

7. Pick out the large pieces of stems, leaves, and the remaining pod pieces.

8. Gently blow on remaining mixture. The chaff should blow away, leaving clean seeds. You may wish to do this outside.

9. Place your clean, dried seeds into a labeled envelope.

10. Store envelopes in a zipper-type sandwich bag in refrigerator. For optimal ong-term (12-month) storage, add silica gel in the bag to remove any remaining moisture. Seeds stored under these conditions will remain viable for many years.
